of violence in america calls each of us to collectively resist all forms of violence in our society. in particular, black on black violence that disproportionately affects every facet of black life in america. we must learn to live together in peace or we will most surely die apart in our own neglect. on the other hand, reaction on twitter. allen west tweeted, who will the president of the united states identify with this time? so we're starting to see more reaction on both sides of the aisle. ainsley, steve, brian, back to you. >> about time. thank you very much. >>> let's talk about the nsa. another revelation came out yesterday afternoon and it turns out that they have -- they have released additional information over the past -- since 2008 on things that have gone wrong in the nsa collection. for example, there was a redacted page which is unredacted and classified yesterday that revealed that we have collected 56,000 wholly domestic communications each year. so this is done, nothing was necessarily done with it. nothing was exposed by it. but these were collected and the fisa c
's happening in the part of the world where america and our allies are often hated. tonight we know more about what could lie ahead as changes are being made to protect our own. >>> also an appeal to stop the early release of 10,000 prisoners denied. one state is forced to let the inmates go free because of overcrowding. fox report, the number one concern now is publicovercrowdi. fox reports the number one concern now is public safety. and, coming to america from spain, the great bull run. you don't have to head overseas for this adrenaline rush. >>> america on high alert as the sun rises on a sunday on the other side of the world. several of our conflicts and embassies, the face of america in a foreign country will remain concerned about a threat that is real. in countries like yemen, jordan and egypt. beefing up additional security with troops and check points in the hopes of deterring any attacks. all told more than 2,000 embassies will remain closed as of today, sunday, in that part of the world. the state department also issuing a global travel alert to any american traveling overseas, wa
" special investigation, the truth about benghazi. for nearly a year, america has been searching for answers about the deadly attacks that took the lives of four americans, including ambassador christopher stevens, information officer sean smith and two former navy s.e.a.l.s. that search for answers could not be any more relevant than tonight, as u.s. embassies and consulates around the world are closed or on high alert. prevents another attack means getting to the truth of what happened there. we go back to benghazi of where it all began to investigate why all the attacks happened. plus, john king gets to the bottom of the talking points and the evolving story coming out of washington in the days and weeks after the attacks. to presidential politics lead to a coverup? and what did the families of the four lost americans want most? you'll hear from them directly. but first, we go back to the hours before the attack. september 11. in america, a day of solemn remembrance. in 2012, a day of violence in the middle east. demonstrators storm the u.s. embassy in cairo, angry over a low-rent film ma
. >> obama care is a disaster for america. >> the struggle is just to be heard above the din. >> if the dodgers told senator mcconnell that he had a kidney stone, he'd refuse to pass it. >> can you put this in perspective? >> the politics of the terror threat. >> chris christie is as hot as it gets. >> minority leader mitch mcconnell is setting the tone. >> the struggle is just to be heard above the din. >>> tonight, 20 u.s. embassies and consulates are closed and will remain closed for the rest of the week in an extraordinarily large-scale security precaution as we continue to learn more details about the terror threat that prompted it. sources told nbc news the closures came after the nsa intercepted an electronic communication between the man who succeeded osama bin laden as the head of al qaeda central and a former personal aide to bin laden and who is also the head of al qaeda's satellite group al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. nbc news reports tonight that a third significant al qaeda operative was also a party to communication discussing the attack. that third al qaed
. and that is -- it seems to me that al qaeda has america on the run right now. there are two issues that the president and vice president ran on. one was al qaeda is pretty much done, defeated. listen. >> most of all, al qaeda's top lieutenants have been defeated. >> i said i'd go after bin laden if we had a clear shot at them, and i did. the goal that i set to defeat al qaeda and deny it a chance to rebuild is now within our reach. >> thanks to air force personnel who did their part. osama bin laden is no longer a threat to our country. we put al qaeda on the path to defeat. >> osama bin laden is dead and general motors is alive. >> al qaeda's on a path to defeat and osama bin laden's dead. al qaeda's on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> we have eliminated osama bin laden. that was our purpose. >> they ran on that, and they ran on saving detroit. listen to this. >> when my opponents and others were arguing we should let detroit go bankrupt. we made a bet on american workers and the ingenuity of american companies and our auto industry is back on top. >> we refused to throw in the tow
we mobilize grassroots america? >> yes, we can! >> and can we defund obama care? >> yes, we can! >> we've got to do something conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> don't blink. i mean, since when have the republicans not stood up to president obama? am i missing something here, governor? >> no, you're not missing anything. but ted cruz is dead wrong. he's making a political mistake. he's again catering to the wacko function of his party. today pat toomey a solid conservative, he said you're not going to shut down the government trying to repeal health care. it's a bad idea. same voices in the republican party have said that. yet ted cruz keeps preaching a voice of action which 52% of republican voters -- you saw that poll we discussed it last week -- 52% of republican voters don't want obama care repealed at this point. they want it changed. they want it modified. they want it to go forward. they don't want to go
to ramadan. >> why do they have affiliates going after america? what's the hallmark that al qaeda could be behind the threats? >> they have shown the desire and ability to go after u.s. targets abroad. they were behind the plot that the cia thwarted a year ago. they're also believed to be behind those cargo packages that were shipped to chicago synagogues with exemployeesive material. that group has shown the ability and desire to attack targets overseas. that's what the intelligence is pointing. >> jill, what can people do? how can they protect themselves sns. >> they have to be very ware of their surroundings. they have to know that the american embassieembassies, the post-closures. you can go on to the website of the state department and find them. those embassies and consulates will be closed. in emergencies they might be able to provide something but you're not going to ghet there. one of the reasons the state department is pointing out is they do not want people and this would be foreign nationals standing in line waiting to get visas. it could be an invitation for a potential att
in america today is amazon basoz which is going to rank up there with apple steve jobs. there are huge similarihat he's doing with his business, and what steve jobs did. >>steve: give me examples >> basoz takes all the company profits and plows it back into the business. traditionally wall street doesn't like that. it wants a piece of those profits -- >>andrew: would it be fair to say he got this for a steal, that it was worth maybe ten times this much money ten years ago? >> maybe so, but that was when the "washington post" was a newspaper you bought physically unread. that's not true today. >>andrew: was it a distress sale? >> no. he's bought content. putting this on to his amazon entire for his subscribers. that's another thing very similar between bezos and steve jobs. bezos makes amazon very user friendly, just like jobs made the iphone, the ipod, the ipad friendly. bezos extremely private, the same as steve jobs. amazon is the same in the sense the stock went straight up. >>gretchen: he claims he's going to keep amazon separate. what i am interested in knowing is why would this b
threat that i've seen in the last several years. >>gretchen: should america take a stand or shut down? joining us is fox news middle eastern terrorist expert. what do you make of this? i know it would take more than an idle threat to close this many embassies. >> i do. what we know is al qaeda from yemen and other spots have threatened individuals will blow up inside the embassy. we're not talking about an all-out attack from the outside by thousands of people, hundreds of people. in this case the best position would have been to say we're not receiving visitors and we are taking measures and also ask the armies and the security forces of these countries to create a perimeter of protection. the reason i'm saying this short of knowing very specifically what time and who and what manner they're going to attack the embassy, if we don't have this information, we don't have it. that's why we shut down 22 of those. this would be the best course. the reason is this is sending a message to al qaeda and the other jihaddists they are winning. even if they don't attack they will get videos and m

that might cause the government to start looking over their shoulder. this is not the america that most of us grew up in and believe in. >> clayton: so when he -- when the president to tucker's point earlier says that we should trust the executive branch, we are doing everything in our power to make sure we are being transparent, it's simply not true there are two reasons why this is not true. number one is, they kept did from the american people. actually three reasons. the american people are important. they kept it from congress, also. and they kept the very things that the fisa court is supposed to oversee from the fisa court. the documents, the audit supposed to be presented to congress they never did. never gave it to the fisa court and american people don't know about it there is your transparency. >> not all democrats upset about it. the left wing of the democratic party to their great credit, ron why den, dennis kucinich, they're upset. >> alisyn: let's talk about other things that the president is doing that has certainly republicans upset. that is the president has basically decide

for president obama in 2008 the first time with the sincere expectation his election would make america more popular around the globe. that hasn't happened. why? >> it hasn't happened. the president said he was going to remake america's image in the world. i think a lot of people thought because he did have a charismatic personality, certainly the president himself believes himself to be charismatic, he was going to be able to win more friends for america, that america would suddenly be beloved by all. what the president seems not to understand, what is most important in terms of a country's standing is that you are respected not necessarily liked. so the president's effort to make everyone like us i think has made us look weak. >> so it's had the opposite effect? >> that's exactly right. what's happened is, the united states is perceived as, first of all, tenuous about making decisions. we had what happened in egypt, for example, the administration was really i think very slow and has still been slow to understand the muslim brotherhood was not democratic. we had the president drawing lines

the world i want to make clear once again that america is not interested in spying on ordinary people. our intelligence is focused above all on finding the information that's necessary to protect our people and in many cases, protect our allies. it's true. we have significant capabilities. what's also true is we show a restraint that many governments around the world don't even think to do. refuse to show. that includes, by the way, some of america's most vocal critics. we shouldn't forget the difference between the ability of our government to collect information online under strict guidelines and for narrow purposes and the willingness of some other governments to throw their own citizens in prison for what they say online. let me close with one additional thought. the men and women of our intelligence community work every single day to keep us safe because they love this country and believe in our values. they're patriots. i believe that those who have lawfully raised their voices on behalf of privacy and civil liberties are also patriots who love our country and want it to live up to o
